We are a melodic rock/pop band out of Modesto, Ca. We formed in the summer of 2011 when Brandon Savage and Josh Gehring met playing music in the Worship Band at church. From there is was pure musical chemistry. Then in walks Kord Jacobsen. This man was an answer to prayers. He added unique musical style and is considered a lyrical genius. The final add to the band was Donald Connacher. He lays down some epic bass lines and drives the music we play. We hope to write music that inspires and changes others for generations to come. We focus on lyrics that have meaning to us, ones that come straight from the heart, and then we team it up with some awesome music that makes you want to move. Come along with us on this journey we call "Hope Is Rising."
